Easter Egg Cookie Cutters

   I don't have any cookies to show you today but I do have a fun little tip for finding unexpected cookie cutters.  Since I started making cookies I have collected a lot of things that aren't really cookie cutters but work just as well and these plastic Easter "eggs" are a perfect example.

    For the last few years around Easter the stores have been selling these special plastic containers to mix in with the Easter eggs and they have a rigid edge that is perfect for cutting cookies.  As you can see, this is a good way to find Character cookie cutters.  Plus, notice the elusive Marshmallow Peep cutter! 
    Usually Easter eggs already have little holes punched in them so the air pressure doesn't pop the egg open but if yours don't than you will need to punch or drill a little hole so the dough doesn't get stuck inside.  Other than that you can use them just as you would any cutter!

    Also, be sure to take a close look at the "egg" and make sure the halves split in the right way to cut the shape you want.  These carrots could have made an interesting barrel shape if the split went the long way around but unfortunately in this case the edge would only cut a circle.

    Easter will be here before we know it!  Be sure to go check out the eggs, you never know what you might find!


  1. Oh my goodness, I hope I can find the peep! Thank you for the information. Love your blog!

  2. Where did you get the carrot container. These are such great ideas.

    1. Hi Sheila,
      It's been a while since I bought them, but I think the carrots came from DollarTree.


  3. What a fabulous tip! I'm going to look at the Easter aisle in the store with new eyes! Kristina
